Blind Assessment: Richly aromatic, deeply complex. Tamarind, narcissus, black currant, ripe tomato, cocoa nib in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with juicy-tart acidity; very full, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Savory-leaning finish driven by notes of ripe tomato and cocoa nib with undertones of black currant and cedar.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers in Kenya’s Nyeri growing region from trees of the SL28, SL34, Batian and Ruiru varieties of Arabica and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). JBC Coffee Roasters’ vision is simple: “let the coffee lead the way” through sourcing and roasting the best and most unique coffees available and rewarding the farmers who grow those coffees with substantial premiums.

The Bottom Line: Classic Kenya through and through: high-toned, juicy-sweet, resonantly deep, rich and bright.
